He’s one of our favourite actors working today, and Mark Strong has appeared in three very high profile roles in the past few months.

Not content with facing off against Kick-Ass and Robin Hood, his Lord Blackwood was one of the best elements of the Guy Ritchie Sherlock Holmes film which was out last year.

We reviewed the DVD, which is out next Monday, recently on the site, and just today Dave posted some great concept art. To complete this mini celebration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth, we’ve got an exclusive interview with Mark Strong, in which he talks about creating his character and working with Guy Ritchie.

If you missed the film in the cinemas you can always enter our competition to win a copy of the film on Blu-ray.
